Melle:
When my best friend decided on the music for her wedding ceremony, at first she was adamant she wanted Lionel Richie's "Easy".
English isn't our first language, but both she and I speak it fluently, and still it took me pointing out that the lyrics weren't exactly appropriate for a wedding (you know... "I just can't stand the pain", "I'm leaving you tomorrow" and so on) to change her mind...

Then again, I may have committed a similar blunder when I sang the Good Charlotte song "Dancefloor Anthem", which is basically about breaking up, to a karaoke bar full of hen night participants ;)

Fi:
A friend of mine threatened to walk down the aisle to The Rains of Castermere. She didn't, but all the couple's sf friends (ie, pretty much everyone) appreciated the joke.

Really?  Why would you say that?

I would guess because it is the Catholic prayer "Hail Mary" which is a prayer that has not been embraced by Protestants. Baptists are not commonly big Maryists.
